south west at last!

The first decent south-westerly blow for ages this morning so headed up to Galley early to see if there were any skuas moving. Not much to start with apart from manxies, but things eventually picked up with 10 puffins, 2 dunlin and an arctic tern for the year (101). Otherwise, could only manage a couple of bonxies and 16 fly-by great northern divers, 14 of which were in sparkling summer plumage. Shame none had white bills though!
